Research support for computer science and IT


The Worshipful Company of Information Technologists Charity has a long tradition of supporting scholars. As well as its long-term partnerships with Hammersmith Academy and Lilian Baylis Technology School, for many years it has encouraged the brightest undergraduate students of computer science through its University IT Awards.

Now, the WCIT Charity has launched a PhD bursary which is open to any researcher in the field of tech. Nominations for 2024 are now closed; we will be inviting new applications at the start of 2025.

How to apply


This bursary is only available through UK universities and applications must be made by the institution rather than the individual.
